  1. I wonder if happiness is really a choice that we can make.

    We use our mind to make a choice, and so, how would our mind even know what real happiness is?

    Perhaps, we more move into happiness’s space automatically, when we clear our mind out of the way, and stop trying too hard to choose happiness with it.

    Happiness lands on us when we are ready to allow it to do so, but how do we get ready, by making better choices, I guess, so perhaps choice, after all, does eventually lead us to happiness, but I do not think that we can simply choose to be happy today, and we will instantly be so.

    Our conscious choices are usually not that strong, and our years of unconscious programming, sitting in the background of us, will prevent in a way, our conscious choices from happening, if we do not take care of them first.

  2. A man is made happy by his own efforts as soon as he learns the necessary elements for happiness: simple pleasures, courage, selflessness, love of work and, above all, a clear conscience. – George Sand
